Depends on: The majority of kidney stones are not able to be chemically dissolved in your body. Some can, but most can not.

Please help me. I think I've got a kidney stone right now. I feel pain in my back, and side. Is there any natural way to get rid of these stones?

Yes. If stone is small enough it will pass thru your ureter from kidney to bladder on its own. Need to drink lots of fluids. However, this may be painful. If stone is too large to pass it will get stuck and require some type of intervention. Suggest you see a urologist to see if stone can be identified, what its location and size are and if you require pain meds or other assistance.

You could have endoscopic removal, which is also "no scars.".

The success rate of this approach depends on the size of the stone, your particular ureteral anatomy and your willingness to endure some discomfort in the process.

Kidney stones. Both of those are options for treatment of the stone. The lithotripsy (shockwaves) uses sounds waves to break apart the stone thus allowing you to pass them. Surgical retrieval is basically just that. However, most of the time they are left alone unless they are causing a problem. Speak with your doctor or urologist.
